We decided to rip it up, not knowing what was underneath, but knew it was better than the "c." This picture shows some of the repair work needed before anything could be done.
Here you can see a couple of cracks. My dog just looked at it, not used to the different texture and smell.
We decided on tile, since most of family has allergies. Here a tile cracked and had to be replaced.
This is the finished project. No longer grody! It made the whole house feel brand new.
"Therefore if any man is in Christ, he is a new creature; the old things passed away and behold, new things have come." 2 Corinthians 5:17
Christ came to me as I was, all grody and yucky. I agreed with Him it was time to change my life, my heart and my mind. He ripped up all my old life and wrapped it around Him on the cross. My soul's condition was bare. The cracks, the holes, the chips. Jesus' sacrifice makes me new. He continues to repair the broken places I make. He covers them with tiles of His choosing. My soul will be totally gorgeous and complete when one day I see Him face to face.
I am grateful for my new floor and forever grateful for my new life in Christ.
Thank you for all the suggestions about my widget. I'm still looking into things. I like some the the templates on "the cutest blog on the block," so beware, no telling what I will come up with! :0
